comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automobile industry. it's been better. we saved everything here and that's why you have jobs, but don't get too comfy. i read they are moving all the jobs working for jeep. they are moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. chrysler is investing half a billion in its toledo plant. but mitt romney got up that said defiance, ohio and says they are moving all their jobs. it's embarrassing for mr. romney. why would mitt romney get up in front of 12,000 people in ohio and tell them the auto bailout hasn't helped you at all. your jobs are going to china. i read it somewhere. where's the story? we found it. he was apparently trolling the nether regions of the right-wing press. he found it on a washington examiner blog post

. part of why ohio's economy has bounced back is we did not let detroit go bankrupt. the obama administration bailed out the automobile industry. it's roared back to life and the big three are hiring again. yesterday mitt romney gave that obama administration success story a little mitt romney tickle. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state is thinking of moving all production to china. >> wow. mr. romney saying, hey, don't get too comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automobile industry. it's been better. we saved everything here and that's why you have jobs, but don't get too comfy. i read they are moving all the jobs working for jeep. they are moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. chrysler is investing half a bi

spoke to cameras himself. president clinton held president obama's campaign event in orlando without him. as well as a second event in ohio with vice president biden. the republican challenger mitt romney cancelled one of three campaign events on his schedule today. he did still address crowds in ohio and davenport, iowa. he held a town hall with voters in ohio by teleconference. but now romney's slate of events for tomorrow has been cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle fr

president leading in six points. in ohio president obama leading in three points. in virginia president obama leading by one point. in florida president obama leading by two points. one state that's not a swing state this year but that president obama made into a swing state in 2008 is the great state of indiana. indiana flipped from red to blue in the presidential contest. president obama is not necessarily expected to pull off the same thing this year in indiana. but this year there's a really hot race in indiana in the senate. after a tea party primary cost senator richard lugar his senate job, the republican candidate in indiana ended up being the guy on the left side of your screen richard mourdock. he's up against joe donnelly. since he made his rape comment at a debate a few weeks ago, in very, very, very, very red state indiana, the republican candidate is now behind in that state senate race. he's losing the race by double digits. here's the interesting thing about that poll to. it's a poll in indiana, which almost never happens. it's really weird, but nobody national

florida and had drown ohio down to a one-point lead. if anything, obama has momentum. he was declared the winner of the final two debates. i'm not sure how the hurricane is playing for him, but his numbers ticked up. that's why the states that seem toss uppy seem like they are more firmly in the president's favor. >> let me ask you, and i didn't warn you i was going to ask you this, but you have been the subject of a lot of criticism in this last week in particular as if the polling model that you built at "the new york times" and the way you explain the polling is somehow biassed or wrong or evil. i feel like you are waging a one-man war against e pneumonia rossty in explaining how polling works. how has the week been? >> it's been a trip where you become a subject of conversation yourself and there's this celebrity level attached to it that's new for me e. but there are other websites that do the same thing that we do. they all show basically the same thing. there's no way to slice and dice the data in ohio or iowa or wisconsin right now and say that romney is winning there

ohio down to maybe a one-point lead for obama. if anything, obama has momentum. he was declared the winner by voters in the final two debates. i'm not sure how the hurricane is playing for him, but his numbers ticked up. that's why all these states that seem very toss up-y now seem like they're more firmly in the president's favor, at least in the polls. >> nate, let me just ask you, and i didn't warn you that i was going to ask you this so tell me if you don't want to answer it, but you have been the subject of a lot of criticism in this last week, in particular, as if what the polling model that you built at the "new york times" and the way that you explain the polling is somehow biased or wrong or evil. i feel like you are waging a one-man war against explaining how polling works and how averaging works. how has the week been? >> it's been a trip where you become a subject of conversation yourself and there's this kind of celebrity level attached to it that's very new for me. but there are other websites that do the same thing that we do. pollster.com and three or four others and

politics, but frankly, what i find most amazing in ohio this year is the way the romney campaign is choosing to close out their campaign there. remember when mr. romney campaigned on that flat-out lie that president obama's getting rid of a work requirement for welfare, even though president obama did no such thing? well, now mr. romney is back with a new ad in ohio with that same old lie about welfare. they brought it back for the end of the campaign. romney campaign sent senator norm coleman from minnesota to ohio to tell voters there that mitt romney had no intention of overturning roe versus wade even though mitt romney himself says he would do everything he could to overturn roe versus wade. he said if that happened, he would be delighted to sign a bill banning all abortion at the federal level. last week in ohio, mr. romney made a mistake, an out and out gaffe. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> not true. totally false. jeep is not doing that. the day mitt

extent in wisconsin. certainly in ohio. if you look nationally at where obama has been bleeding support, with whites, especially white guys, not as much in ohio. not nearly as dramatic. you can definitely link that to the economy there, to the bailout there, and i can think it's a small example, the 1988 election. bush versus dukakis, a sea of red on the electoral map. bush won coast to coast. there were three states in the upper midwest, an ocean of red that went democratic. iowa, minnesota and wisconsin. it was because the farm economy collapsed in the mid 1980s. the economy was so much worse there than the rest of the country that they wanted to take it out on the reagan administration. they turned on bush and voted for dukakis. everybody else was going for bush. so i see there's a potential there for kind of a flip of that. the economy is strong in ohio. i can definitely see it would probably explain why obama is doing better in ohio than he is nationally. >> steve, thank you for joining us here tonight. do you feel like between now and the election it's essentially just one

most recent polling in the state of ohio shows president obama ahead in ohio by 2.3 points. these "real clear politics" averages are an imperfect measure. i want to give you a very rough idea of how basically how close it is right now. that's what it is in ohio. in virginia, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of the -- southwest, excuse me.
